What should offer letter include?

Make sure to speak good English while handing the letter over, as you need to explain to the newbie what exactly the letter communicates.

The offer letter needs to be handed over to the employee only after you have had a verbal discussion with the candidate. As an HR executive, it would be ideal if you speak in fluent English with your employees, old or new. Remember, you should extend an offer letter only after having a clear verbal conversation about the salary and negotiation of the same. Make a copy of the job letter, one for either of the parties. Get both signed by the candidate and remember to keep a smile on your face at all times.
